Republican senator John
McCain is still raising
questions and hackles

Washington Post, by Jason Horowitz

John McCain was excited. It was late January, and the following day, he and a group of bipartisan senators were set to announce their framework for comprehensive immigration reform. He picked up the phone and called an old friend in Arizona. “We got it yep, yep,” McCain said, according to Grant Woods, who detected a long-lost measure of energy in the Republican’s voice. The next morning McCain called Woods again: “We’re going over there,” the senior senator from Arizona said, referring to the Capitol Hill unveiling. “It’s going to be good.” His optimism was warranted. The bipartisan effort was

He´s going to be running against Mr. Gabby Giffords/Kelly.

If we don´t get a great candidate to primary him, we are going to lose that seat.

FTA: "“I have seen a number of occasions around here where people have stayed too long,” McCain said.

Yes Sir, you are right! You´ve spent 20 years to long as Senator!

I´d just like the real John McCain to be real gone.

I´m sick of his playing both sides against the middle schtick.

Meanwhile 10...11...14....21 million ILLEGAL ALIENS flood across our borders and change the character of our nation under our feet.

We´ve got Dim politicians here in S. New Mexico that go to rallies in support of criminal aliens. If only they would spend as much time and energy supporting American citizens, who they were elected to represent. The left doesn´t want us to call them "illegal aliens." They are CRIMINAL aliens. They broke the law coming here, and commit other criminal acts to work and live here. People who commit a pattern of crimes to remain in the criminal underground are called Career Criminals.

Arizona had over 1000 kidnappings last year related to illegal alien trafficing. There are large areas of the state where it is not safe to travel - because of illegals. Gang and drug violence have exploaded.

So, why would the citizes of Arizona oppose an open border?

The immigration reform idea is the bright idea of McCain and Graham and they talked Rubio into carrying their bucket of water. Those two are also glued at the hip to Kelly Ayotte--a big minus in my estimation for her career.
McCain and Graham owe a huge apology to the fantastic new Senator from Texas, Ted Cruz. I was wondering which Senator had told Cruz he didn´t want to hear Gov. Palin´s name mentioned--couldn´t be any other than McCain.
IMO that is one of the reasons the two are trying to push Ayotte so hard. McCain is jealous. It showed during the 2008 campaign--he could hardly get over a couple of hundred at his "townhalls" while Palin was drawing crowds of 20, 30,000 upwards at her rallies. After his suspension of campaign he never did a single/by himself townhall again and basked in the glory (he thought they were in attendance for him) of the multitudes at the rallies. McCain was a "hold my nose to vote" as was Romney. The only reason he was not totally crushed by the freebie takers was because of Gov. Palin.

MIAMI — President Barack Obama campaigned for better access to higher education Friday during a visit to a Miami-Dade high school he says should be a model for the rest of the country. The president and first lady helicoptered into Coral Reef Senior High in the early afternoon, where they talked college, careers and investment with a classroom of seniors before electrifying a gymnasium with hundreds of screaming upperclassmen seated to the ceiling in bleachers. "We heard great things about your school," Obama said, barely audible over the roar. "We wanted to come down here and see what was going

Most of America´s young adults are single, don´t go to church and while half say they have no loyalty to a political party, when pushed they tend to swing further left politically than those before them. A new Pew Research Center survey out Friday showed that half of America´s young adults, ages 18 to 33, consider themselves political independents, identifying with neither party. But asked which way they lean politically, half of the so-called millennials say they lean toward the Democratic Party, the highest share for any age group over the last decade.

What’s been said of confession — that it is good for one’s soul but bad for one’s reputation — can also be true of testifying to Congress, so Lois Lerner has chosen to stay silent. Hers, however, is an eloquent silence. The most intrusive and potentially most punitive federal agency has been politicized; the IRS has become an appendage of Barack Obama’s party. Furthermore, congruent with exhortations from some congressional Democrats, it is intensifying its efforts to suffocate groups critical of progressives, by delaying what once was the swift, routine granting of tax-exempt status. So, the IRS, far from repenting

A pair of Long Island brothers cooked up millions of dollars worth of knockoff health products like Vaseline, baby oil, ChapStick and Vicks VapoRub — and the items ended up on store shelves as the real thing. The sophisticated operation — described as the largest-ever uncovered in the US — had five manufacturing facilities that pumped out the bogus concoctions, which included potentially dangerous versions of the popular, over-the-counter products. Investigators raided locations in Franklin Square, Oceanside, Freeport and Valley Stream Thursday and needed four tractor-trailer trucks to haul off fake products worth more than $2 million, authorities said. “Health and beauty products

PHOENIX -- Federal investigators concluded there was sufficient evidence to bring charges against public officials during their years-long abuse-of-power investigation targeting Maricopa County law-enforcement agencies, according to heavily redacted records obtained by The Arizona Republic. The records indicate that FBI agents found probable cause to recommend felony counts of obstructing criminal investigations of prosecutions, theft by threats, tampering with witnesses, perjury and theft by extortion. Ultimately, federal prosecutors in August 2012 closed the three-year FBI criminal investigation and grand-jury probe into Sheriff Joe Arpaio, former County Attorney Andrew Thomas and their top deputies, saying there would be no indictments due



IRS: 89K Fewer Audits in 2013 Because

Because of “sequestration and furloughs” the number of individuals audited by the Internal Revenue Service fell by 80,000 in fiscal 2013 and the number of businesses audited fell by 9,000, according to the IRS’s Budget in Brief released this week. “As a result of the impacts of sequestration and furloughs, the IRS delivered key enforcement programs below 2012 levels,” said the budget document. “Total individual audits fell 5 percent from 1.48 million to 1.40 million, while audits of high income individuals declined from 179,000 to 172,000. Business return audits dropped 13 percent from 70,000 to 61,000”. Because of the decline,

SPRINGFIELD—The daughter of the Rev. Jeremiah Wright, President Barack Obama’s former minister, was convicted by a federal jury Friday of laundering thousands of dollars from a $1.25 million state grant for a Chicago-based job-training program. Jeri Wright said she would "definitely" appeal the verdict in U.S. District Court, which found her guilty of 11 counts that included money laundering, lying to federal agents and lying to a grand jury. "I didn´t do anything," Wright, 48, of Hazel Crest, said as she left the Springfield courtroom. Her father, whose preaching became a lightning rod during Obama´s first presidential campaign, was not

D´Souza was indicted for violating federal election laws in January by the Department of Justice. Many saw the move as pure political payback against an outspoken critic of President Obama.

So, Lois Lerner still won´t talk about her role in the illegal targeting and harassment by the IRS of conservative and Tea Party groups seeking 501(c)(4) tax exemptions. Lerner appeared for a second time Wednesday before the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform and claimed her Fifth Amendment right not to incriminate herself. It isn´t hard to figure out why Lerner´s lips are sealed. First, she knows the House of Representatives can cite her for contempt of Congress, but Attorney General Eric Holder would decide whether she is prosecuted on that charge. Lerner need not worry since President Obama has

Via Matt Lewis, here’s Maverick once again demonstrating that “cordial relationship” in politico-speak means “two people who can’t publicly admit to hating each other but obviously do.” And it’s a cheap shot. Cruz’s point yesterday at CPAC was that Dole, McCain, and Romney lost because they weren’t conservative enough. That’s not because they’re gutless — he said specifically that they were “good” and “decent” men — but because they’re not committed, full-throated ideologues, even less so when they’re fighting for purple states in a national election. We can debate whether that’s true but there’s nothing offensive in raising the subject.

Christie’s remarks were highly anticipated, not only because of the lingering scandal but also because CPAC brass dinged him last year by leaving him off of the guest list.
